Aldon "Yellow" distributor for A+ engines.
Too many people think the only way to improve performance is to tear the engine apart and upgrade something., typically the camshaft, but if you are still using that 20 year old distributor you aren't doing the easy stuff first! Distributors are mechanical moving devices that must be precise to maximize performance.
The Aldon Yellow distributor is a modern version of the old Special Tuning high performance "S" distributor. With full centrifigal advance, it has a 12 degree advance plate and a total of 24 degree total advance. The curve is faster than the "S" and thus is slightly quicker in engine response. Works great on and off the track.
For non-APlus version see ALDON-YELLOW.
If you want the Aldon Yellow with vacuum advance for a non-A+ engine, see C-27H7768.

Any deviation away from the original standard engine specification, or where a dizzy from another source is used in the engine you have, the ignition timing will generally be different from that set by the manufacturer.

Any dizzy can be set to get maximum power. No problem. Unfortunately that's only one spot on the whole power curve/rpm range. If the curve isn't right elsewhere, the engine will be either loosing power - in some instances by substantial amounts - or detonating its self into oblivion and a costly re-build.
DISTRIBUTORS - working basics.

To maximize power and economy potential from any engine, burning the compressed fuel/air mixture at precisely the right point throughout the engines entire rpm range is essential. This ‘point’ is generally somewhere before the piston reaches TDC on its power stroke described in degrees - i.e. 10 degrees BTDC.

Since the A-Series has such an efficient combustion chamber design, the standard points set-up is perfectly capable of providing sufficient sparks for effective combustion when new. And this is the problem. They require regular servicing to maintain maximum performance. This can be a chore, so is generally neglected.
